Manchester City confirm agreement with Corinthians for Carlos Tevez
City turned down a £40 million bid from the Brazilian club last week, and were believed to be holding out for £50 million for a player who finished as joint top scorer in the Premier League last season with 20 goals.
However, speaking on the club's pre-season tour of the USA/Canada, Mancini told the media at the press conference in Vancouver: "We have an agreement with Corinthians but Carlos now is still a City player."
Asked whether Tevez would now be discussing personal terms, Mancini replied: "I don't know this. I repeat, at the moment, Carlos is still a City player.
"I want to wait. At the moment we are here, we are working with the other guys. We should think about this.''
